SOURCE: Can you vent the Rinnai 551F vertically through ceiling?

This unit can be vented through the roof but requires a specialized flue system-do not use an existing flue connection. Call a contractor - have them check and see if the unit can be modified to a vertical flue- it will require the existing piping to be replaced--Not a job for a do-it yourselfer

Chimney type wall furnace. The furnace won't start However after switch was off for a couple hours and turn on the switch it started. What is a possible problem?


The problem sounds like the thermocouple is not working correctly. After being off for a couple hours allowed it to cool down and reset. Sometimes you can clean the soot build up from it and it will work again. Sometimes they just need replacing. the thermocouple is what the pilot light flame heats up when you turn on the heater. when the thermocouple gets hot it sends a 20 to 60 millivolt signal to the gas valve to activate the gas flow to the main burner.

What size fresh air vent do I need in a boiler room with a gas boiler and gas hot water heater with about 220,000 btu combined


I suggest that you run a duct that is 3 inches larger than the furnace duct . and you should run it down close to the floor and aim it in the direction of the furnace. this will trap warm air above the vent and supply an adequate supply of air for combustion. also make sure you have insulated any pipes in the furnace room that carry water or steam you want heat where you live, not going up the chimney.

Where do you get parts for the 15000 btu mark 2


Parts for Rinnai Heaters can only be purchased from an authorized Rinnai dealer/retailer. Rinnai is very protective of their dealers/retailers, so this is the only way to purchase them.

Unfortunately, Rinnai only sells repair parts through their authorized dealers. Contact the dealer you purchased it from. If you are not the original owner of the home/heater, you can go to Rinnai's website and search for a dealer near you. http://www.rinnai.us/direct-vent-wall-furnaces/

make sure you have 3 feet of vent pipe out of the roof and you have a UL listed vent cap, if you can re-light the unit all parts are good.

actually if you vent your furnace by code, it would probably be cheaper to have a chimney liner installed up the old masonry chimney. you may be able to buy a kit and do this yourself. any time a new furnace with a draft inducer on it is installed, it must be vented into the proper flu material. if it was vented into your chimney, it may not have be installed by code for your area. you may talk to the instaled if they are still available and maybe that can return and do it correctly. if you leave this vented into your masonry chimney, the acid content of the exhaust will ruin the chimney. a liner will also get rid of the water problem you have.

Need to move the unit by dismantling


Remove the two screws on the side trim. Remove the two top screws from the filter panel. Reach behind the heater and pull the sock down on the vent pipe. unclip the two clamps holding the vent pipe together. Remove the plastic elbow off of the vent termination. Slide the heater to the left to slide the vent pipe off of the vent termination. Remove the gas line after shutting the gas off.
